conversations? is the president of the united states. chris, those are some pretty strong words from strong obama ally. should the president be more involved in these talks? >> you're talking about an election that just ended. you're talking about a lame duck session and a new congress being sworn in it's the new congress that's going to deal with this and there's going to be significant changes. i think the president sitting back. letting the certain players and congress kind of figure out the main details. i have no doubt to come back after the president is sworn in again, he's going to put a major push in. i have no doubt about that. in fact it's smart politics, it's smart policy. i think you've seen republicans and democrats coming to terms with that, this is something that's going to get done. my guess is it's probably going to get done in the first year of the new presidency. joe after immigration reform, most folks suspect that immigration reform is going to get done in some way, shape or, form or fashion. after that, joe, what's, what do you think is going to be the focus of this pr
not understand why president obama is the president everybody thinks he is. why is he not helping with small business that is so important to the united states? we are getting no help. i would like to see -- he has never been in business, he has never done anything as far as the business world is concerned. his political ideas for business is nonexistent then anybody can see. until we understand that we cannot keep electing lawyers for a government, we will have these problems. these guys have never been in business. they are only into their political agenda. the political agenda needs to end. host: thank you for the call. this from the twitter page. an earlier caller talking about government spending. this from "the washington times." so far in fiscal year 2013, the government notching up a $172 billion deficit in november a lawn. jams is joining us from orlando, florida on the democrats' line. caller: i think the number one priority is the people, and i think he will do a good job. people should give him more credit and let him do what he is doing. it will take time. i think he has a lot o
